Releasing Aug 25th, 2015

In a novel that’s perfect for fans of Abbi Glines and Jessica Sorensen, USA Today bestselling author Lauren Layne delivers a sexy take on the timeless question: Can a guy and a girl really be “just friends”?

When Parker Blanton meets Ben Olsen during her freshman year of college, the connection is immediate—and platonic. Six years later, they’re still best friends, sharing an apartment in Portland’s trendy Northwest District as they happily settle into adult life. But when Parker’s boyfriend dumps her out of the blue, she starts to wonder about Ben’s no-strings-attached approach to dating. The trouble is, even with Ben as her wingman, Parker can’t seem to get the hang of casual sex—until she tries it with him.

The arrangement works perfectly . . . at first. The sex is mind-blowing, and their friendship remains as solid as ever, without any of the usual messy romantic entanglements. But when Parker’s ex decides he wants her back, Ben is shocked by a fierce stab of possessiveness. And when Ben starts seeing a girl from work, Parker finds herself plagued by unfamiliar jealousy. With their friendship on the rocks for the first time, Parker and Ben face an alarming truth: Maybe they can’t go back. And maybe, deep down, they never want to.

4 Star Review by Natasha Gentile

So let me tell you about this book. It was amazing. I have always been a believer that you can’t be friend with the opposite sex. Please refrain from sending me emails saying the opposite, because this book actually agrees with me.

Parker and Ben have been best friends for years, strange I know, but not only are they best friend they are also room mates.  
So far things are strictly platonic because well Parker has a boyfriend, Lance, who has been her boyfriend for five years and well Ben likes to share his love for the women.

When Lance decides he isn’t that happy with Parker, she is crushed and decides she is going to be a wham bam thank you kind of girl. She isn’t ready to get her heart broken again so she looks for a no strings attached kind of love.  

After careful consideration she asks Ben to help her with her current predicament of getting laid. Well Ben is confused; he is thinking this isn’t a good idea, nothing good can come from this, and boy is he ever right.

What starts out as a friends with benefits situation slowly leads into lines being blurred. Can they actually still be best friends after they have done the horizontal mambo?
